Unaltered Fat Burner ReviewUnaltered Fat Burner is a dietary supplement developed for serious athletes and those who would like to lose weight. It comes from manufacturer UNALTERED and has been formulated to offer a variety of benefits, such as increased metabolic rate, fat incineration, appetite suppression, and energy boosting.

The manufacturer claims on its official webpage that it’s 100% Unaltered Fat Burner is free of banned substances, is third party tested and is manufactured in a cGMP Facility. This implies that care went into creating this diet pill. That being said, to gain a better idea of just how beneficial it can be to your weight loss efforts, it’s important to take a look at the ingredients.

When this Unaltered Fat Burner review was written, its formula was composed of: N-Acetyl L-Carnitine, Coleus Forskohlii Powder, Quercitin, Green Tea Extract, Caffeine Anhydrous, Cayenne Pepper Powder, Synephrine HCl, Yohimbe Powder.

The manufacturer is correct in that its formula does not contain any banned substances. That being said, there are two important things that should be pointed out about the above ingredients. Firstly, there is no scientific proof that any of these ingredients effectively burn fat or decrease appetite in any way that leads to measurable fat loss. That said, research has found that caffeine can improve mental focus and energy, two benefits that could help support dieting and exercising.

Secondly, Unaltered Fat Burner contains syneprhine. This is a naturally occurring stimulant in bitter orange and is known to enhance the effects of caffeine. While not a banned substance, when combined with caffeine, synephrine can be dangerous. The FDA has warned that the combination of these two stimulants can increase the risk of serous cardiovascular side effects, even in healthy individuals. These risks include fainting, high blood pressure, heart attack and stroke.

Overall, Unaltered Fat Burner is more of a stimulant pill than it is anything else. While you are likely to feel a boost in mental alertness and even energy while taking this diet pill, there is a chance that these benefits may come with unpleasant side effects, such as jitters, anxiety, headache, restlessness, upset stomach, insomnia, etc.

Due to the fact that Unaltered Fat Burner combines both caffeine and synephrine it may be in your best interest to consider another non-prescription diet pill to use as part of your weight management efforts. That said, be sure to speak to your healthcare provider prior to taking this product if you should decide you would like to try it.

XyLEAN ReviewXyLEAN, from Lexona Labs, is a dietary supplement marketed for weight loss. This non-prescription diet pill has been designed to support appetite suppression, energy and focus. Each of these benefits can be highly beneficial to your dieting and exercising efforts as you work toward shedding excess pounds.

For instance, appetite suppression can help you stick to your efforts to maintain a healthful diet that is reduced in calories. Energy can help you carry on with your busy day and help you not skip out on workouts. Meanwhile, having focus can benefit both your dieting and exercising goals. When you have a clear head it is easier to stick to your objectives.

That being said, while these are all notable benefits, this doesn’t mean that XyLEAN will necessarily deliver them. Its efficacy is fully dependent on the ingredients within its formula.

When this XyLEAN review was written, the formula was composed of a XyLEAN Blend of which there was 725 mg per 1 table serving. The XyLEAN Blend contained the following ingredients: Caffeine Anhydrous, Beta-Phenylethylamine HCl, Phase-2 Carb Controller, White Kidney Bean Extract, Octopamine HCl, Theobromine, L-Theanine, Hordenine HCl, Synephrine HCl.

Based on the above ingredients, XyLEAN is likely to provide increased focus and energy. The main reason is due to the fact that it contains almost all stimulant ingredients. That being said, the fact that it contains so many stimulants is also a downside. The reason is that this significantly increases the risk of adverse effects, such as insomnia, anxiety, jitters, restlessness, heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure, etc.

To put this into greater perspective, the following are all the stimulant ingredients this product contains: caffeine, phenylelthylamine, octopamine, syneprhine and hordenine.

To make matters worse, this product combines caffeine with two naturally occurring stimulants in the herb bitter orange: syneprhine and octopamine. Synephrine, specifically, acts as a catalyst to caffeine. In addition to boosting its good side effects, it also significantly increases its bad side effects. As a result, this can increase the risk of dangerous cardiovascular events such as high blood pressure, fainting, heart attack and stroke.

Unfortunately, due to the number of stimulants in XyLEAN, it would be in your best interest to avoid this product. There are much safer non-prescription diet pills that can help support your weight management program. Still, if you feel that this product is worth a try, it is prudent that you first speak with your healthcare professional to make sure it is safe for you to take.

Nutrabolic Thermal XTC is a weight loss supplement that is meant to be used by dieters who are using exercise as their main way to lose weight. The design of this product is such that it should be used ahead of workouts in order to boost both performance and results.

It comes in both capsule and powder form so it can be taken as a pill or it can be mixed into a liquid to take it as a beverage. That way, no matter what your preference, you will be able to take this supplement in that form.

The design of Nutrabolics Thermal XTC is meant to provide users with thermogenic fat-burning, “euphoric” energy and focus, food cravings control, and fat storage suppression. The formula for this product is listed as containing the following ingredients: L-tyrosine, green coffee bean extract, caffeine anhydrous, Malabar tamarind, African wild mango, evodia, chundan, nutmeg and guggulsterone.

Those ingredients are supposed to provide users with the full list of benefits as described on the website. While it is nearly certain that most people who use this product will feel an increase in energy levels due to the number of stimulants found in this product, it is unclear as to whether or not the other benefits will be experienced. The reason is that most of the ingredients on this list are not proven in medical studies.

Just because they’re not proven, it doesn’t mean that they won’t work. However, it does mean that there isn’t any proof of a direct connection between usage in a supplement and the promised outcomes. Furthermore, there is no way to know the ideal dose of the ingredient in order to provide the desired benefit without leading to side effects.

One very strong positive point that can be made about the information provided about this product is that the quantity of every ingredient is provided. This is a rare feature in a website of this nature. This can be very helpful in allowing customers to research the ingredients and to know what type of reaction they can expect from each one. This is particularly important in the case of the stimulants contained within this product.

It appears as though every dose of this product would provide the equivalent caffeine to about a cup and a half of coffee, consumed all at once. While some people will not have a problem with this, others will have side effects such as jitters, anxiety, diarrhea, nausea, headache, an increased heartbeat and a rise in blood pressure.

Avaprex is an As Seen on TV weight loss supplement that is marketed as being an alternative to prescription weight loss medications such as Adipex and Phentermine. The official website that was created specifically for these pills claims a number of different benefits from which dieters are supposed to be able to benefit.

The site makes it very clear right at the start that while these are meant to be highly effective diet pills, Avaprex is not a product that is safe and appropriate for all dieters. For example, it points out that it is meant only for adults who are aged 18 years old or older, and it is not considered to be safe to use for pregnant women or mothers who are breastfeeding their babies.

For the first few months that the product existed, the creators of the official website went to the extent of listening not only the names of all the ingredients that are included in this product, but also included the quantities of each substance when taking in the recommended servings of 2 capsules at a time. At the time this review was written, however, it had designated its formula as proprietary and listed the quantities of only some of its ingredients, instead of all of them. One dose of two capsules contained: 300 mg of raspberry ketone, 200 mg of green tea, 100 mg of caffeine anhydrous, and a proprietary blend of 600 mg containing apple cider vinegar, grapefruit, kelp, acai fruit, African mango, and resveratrol extract.

While the site has gone to the effort of providing this information, which does make it easier for dieters to be able to decide whether or not these ingredients are safe and appropriate for their dieting expectations and health needs, the down side is that the majority of those ingredients are unproven, at best.

Of that entire list of ingredients, only caffeine anhydrous and green tea have a certain body of scientific and clinical evidence to support their use as a part of a diet pill. The rest of the ingredients are considered to be entirely unproven, unlikely to be beneficial, or have only preliminary research to support claims made about their weight loss benefits.

For this reason, it would be challenging to be able to recommend Avaprex over other products on the market that are supported by a more substantial body of research published in peer reviewed medical journals.

Lipo 6 Black Hers is an over the counter diet pill that is made by Nutrex, a supplement company that sells an assortment of different products for weight loss, bodybuilding, and other similar categories. This supplement was designed to promote thermogenesis. The reason is that by increasing the body temperature, it forces the cells to burn through more energy (which is fueled by body fats an calories) to produce the additional heat. What this is supposed to do is raise the rate of calorie burning to such a degree that it will make it easier for the dieter to be able to lose weight while preventing weight gain.

The Lipo 6 line of supplements has been around at Nutrex for quite some time. In fact, the original product under that name included ephedra as an ingredient, back when it was still legal to do so. However, when the FDA banned the use of ephedra at any amount, this manufacturer stripped it from the formula of its product and designed a new formulation that would be entirely legal and that would still encourage thermogenesis in the body.

Lipo 6 Black Hers is supposed to work in three primary ways. It is designed to be used by active women, so it is not simply for people who are hoping to be able to pop a pill and watch the fat magically melt off the body. That is actually a positive trait to this pill because the “magic” outcome of a diet pill has never been created. Regardless of claims made by other diet pills, there is no product in existence that will allow a dieter to change nothing about their lifestyles and still lose weight by popping a pill.

In the case of Lipo 6 Black Hers, the idea is that the dieter is supposed to take this pill, eat a healthy, portion controlled diet, and remain active every day. In that way, it will speed up the rate of fat burning beyond where it would naturally be.

Of course, this product is only as good as it says it is if the ingredients that it has used in its current formula are able to produce the claimed benefits. At the time of the writing of this review, the ingredients that were listed on the official page for these pills on the official Nutrex website were: Bacognize®(bacopa monnieri extract), caffeine anhydrous, Advantra Z® citrus aurantium, vinpocetine, zingerone, and yohimbine HCl.

Phentaslim is an over the counter weight loss supplement that is manufactured by a company named Optimum Nutra Inc. This pill has been created as a fat burner, but the official website for the product also claims that it will assist with appetite suppression, long lasting energy boosting, and an increased metabolism.

The fact that the product’s name starts with “phen” makes it evident that the marketing strategy for this product is one that would have consumers believe that this product is an alternative for the prescription diet drug called Phentermine. This would indicate that it provides similar benefits and comparable advantages to that medication, only in a nonprescription format. However, it is important to note that this is a very common strategy, so it is highly recommended that any product – regardless of its name be further investigated before assuming that it has the chance to work.

At the time that this review was written, one bottle of Phentaslim, containing 60 capsules – the equivalent to a one month supply – was on sale for $59.99 at the official website. That said, it should be noted that the same sale was spotted over a year before the review was written, so it does appear to be the regular price for these diet pills, even though it is presented as a sale price. The purchase of these supplements comes with a 30 day money-back guarantee, though there is some fine print to be considered.

At the time of the writing of this review, the ingredients listed for Phentaslim on its official website were: Thiamin (Vitamin B1), Riboflavin (Vitamin B2), Vitamin B6, Vitamin B12, Zinc, Niacin, L-Carnitine, Raspberry Ketones, L-Tyrosine, Caffeine Anhydrous, Green Tea (4:1 extract), Guarana Seed, Panax Ginseng Root, and Cayenne.

While some of those ingredients have been researched, and a few of those have been shown to be helpful in assisting dieters to keep up with a healthy eating program and a regular exercise strategy (most specifically caffeine anhydrous due to its energy boosting, and there is some indication that green tea can promote more efficient fat burning), some of these ingredients (such as raspberry ketones) were clearly added because of media hype and not because they are necessarily known to work.

Moreover as there are so many stimulant ingredients in this product, it is likely that individuals with sensitivities to that type of ingredient will experience side effects such as nervousness, jitters, headache, or others.

Metabosyn is a type of diet pill that is designed to help people to be able to lose weight. The company behind this product is NutriPharm, LLC, which is a large manufacturer of supplements within this category and that is based in Salt Lake City, Utah. That particular location is known to be a hub for very low quality health and weight loss category supplements. That said, just because this product is made in a certain city, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it will not work. It is important to give these diet pills a fair examination before discounting them, altogether.

To start, the company, itself, has had many different customer complaints registered against it, online. However, those complaints appear to be focused primarily on products other than Metabosyn, so there is still a chance that this could be the diamond in the rough.

The product is manufactured in the United States and it can be purchased exclusively within that country. The official website for the product does not offer international shipping options. At the time that this review was written, each bottle contained a month’s supply of the product and it cost $69.95, in addition to the $4.95 domestic shipping fee.

The ingredients that make up the Metabosyn formula were listed as being: green coffee bean extract, Chromax, raspberry ketone, lipolide SC, phenyethylamine, caffeine anhydrous, evodiamine, humulus lupulus, methyl synephrine, ginger root, quercetin, vitamin B12, and bioperine.

There are a few concerns that should start to rise when looking at this list of ingredients. The first is that this is a relatively long list, so it is hard to tell whether or not it is possible for enough of the ingredients to be used to produce any benefit – if there is any to be had. However, the second problem is that there is a potentially dangerous combination within this list. That combination is between the methyl synephrine and the caffeine anhydrous.

Caffeine anhydrous, on its own, is usually considered to be a well tolerated stimulant that is safe to use for most dieters on a regular basis. In fact, it has been extensively researched and it has been connected with a number of weight loss supporting benefits such as a metabolic boost, increased alertness, and even appetite suppression for some people.

On the other hand, synephrine is an ingredient that has been associated with some potentially dangerous side effects, to the point that the FDA has warned dieters not to use supplements that contain that ingredient. Furthermore, a growing body of research has shown that when synephrine is combined with other stimulants, especially caffeine, the risk of those dangerous side effects – such as stroke or heart attack – climbs significantly.

Phentarmine Tablets are an over the counter weight loss pill that are made and manufactured by a company called GS Labs. This product is advertised as being nutraceutical, and that it is an appetite suppressant that will also speed up the user’s rate of weight loss. The facility and conditions under which this product is created meets the rigid GMP standards.

The formula that makes up the Phentarmine Tablets were chosen to promote thermogenesis in the body. This is meant to help improve the breakdown of the cells, reduce stress, improve blood circulation, control blood glucose levels, increase energy levels, and provide improved metabolic regulation.

Those ingredients include: L-Phenylalanine, Synephrine HCL, Theobromine, Caffeine Anhydrous, Copper Sulfate, 7-Keto (DHEA), L-Carnitine, and L-Taurine. Those are all combined into a white and blue speck pill. Clearly, this formula is greatly based on stimulants, particularly in the form of synephrine and caffeine. Those two stimulants are quite powerful and while caffeine can be used safely, even on a regular basis, the same cannot necessarily be said about synephrine.

Synephrine is a substance that is commonly found in weight loss supplements, despite the fact that the FDA has specifically issued a warning to caution consumers against its use for this purpose. It not only comes with the risk of potential dangerous side effects for certain users, but those risks skyrocket when it is combined with caffeine, just as has been done in the formula for Phentarmine Tablets.

Synephrine –particularly when combined with caffeine – can raise the risk of issues relating to increased blood pressure and can put a user at a greater risk of stroke or heart attack.

At the time of the writing of this review, a one month supply of these diet pills would cost $87 when purchased from the official website of the manufacturer.

Even though the marketing for this product suggests that there is a great deal of benefit to its use, there are no clinical studies to show that the formula is effective and safe. Some of the ingredients have indeed been studied individually, but not all of them have been found to be helpful for dieters or even necessarily safe to use.

Among the potential side effects of using Phentarmine are mood changes, headache, jitters, sleep struggles and insomnia, nausea, diarrhea, and others. It is important that anyone who uses this product should not do so after 4pm as it will increase the risk of overnight restlessness and problems sleeping.

Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite is a nonprescription weight loss pill that is among many with similar names by this brand. It claims to provide “powerful weight loss” through enhanced focus, energy, and “super-thermogenesis”.

As this product contains a high level of stimulants, it is a very good idea for dieters to speak with their doctors before beginning its use. It is not appropriate for everyone, and its stimulant content will cause many dieters to experience side effects such as nervousness, shakes and tremors, higher blood pressure, a rapid heartbeat, heart palpitations, sleep struggles, and others. To the credit of the manufacturer, this site does caution users that everyone has a different tolerance level to stimulants, so this product should be taken with care and it is not right for all dieters.

Though the marketing does not say so specifically, the wording and images on the official webpage suggest that it is meant primarily for male dieters. While the website claims to have conducted two studies on the ingredients within this formula, the lack of information about the study does not suggest that it was conducted by anyone outside of MuscleTech (the company behind the Hydroxycut brand) and it doesn’t identify the number of people who were involved, so it is unclear as to whether or not it was enough to show that it is both safe and effective.

The ingredients within the Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite formula include: caffeine anhydrous (270 mg), green coffee extract, coleus extract, L-theanine, cocoa extract, and yohimbe extract. There are stimulants in several of these ingredients and the amount of caffeine, alone, is already the equivalent to more than 2 cups of coffee. Considering that this is taken all at once instead of being sipped throughout the day, this indicates that there is a high chance that many dieters will, indeed, suffer from the types of side effects mentioned above.

That said, if taken in advance of a cardio workout, many dieters will be able to burn fat more quickly and easily than they would with exercise alone, and the added energy could give exercisers a boost to help them to power through workouts more effectively, without suffering from fatigue that could drain their motivation.

Therefore, for the dieters who have a high stimulant tolerance, this could be helpful alongside their cardio workouts. However, Hydroxycut Hardcore Elite should be taken with care in order to ensure that the benefits will outweigh potential drawbacks.

Xenamine is a nonprescription weight loss supplement that is manufactured by a small company that is known as InnerVital. The official website for this product refers to these diet pills as fat burners and says that they will burn fat more quickly than any other supplement on the market. It also allegedly provides appetite suppression and metabolism boosting, though at the time that this review was written, the official website didn’t cite any medical studies that would indicate that there is any scientific research to support those claims.

That said, just because a product hasn’t been researched as a whole, it doesn’t mean that it won’t work. Therefore, after consulting a doctor, it is recommended that anyone considering the use of this product actually look into the ingredients and the research that has been conducted on them either together or individually. It is best to look for studies that are conducted by independent and reputable organizations, such as universities, that have not received funding by companies that stand to gain by positive results.

At the time that this review was written, the ingredients in Xenamine, which were listed on the official website, included: chromium, caffeine anhydrous, and a proprietary blend of hoodia cactus powder, caralluma fimbriata extract, glucomannan, green tea extract, theobromine, guarana, cha de bugre, maca extract, L-theanine, banaba, pomegranate powder, and gugglesterone.

At first glance, it is easy to see that a great deal of the results that are produced by this product are based on stimulants. There are several stimulant ingredients in this formulation. This doesn’t necessarily mean that it isn’t a good product, but it could cause unwanted side effects in many dieters. Moreover, it should also be noted that several of the ingredients in this list are not at all scientifically proven but are successful at the moment exclusively due to media hype. This does not say much about the ability of the Xenamine company to select proper safe and effective weight loss supporting ingredients other than the interest of that business in making money from consumers who have not done their homework when looking into their diet pills.

Finally, it should be noted that with a list of ingredients as long as this one, even if the substances that were chosen were each shown to be effective by research – which many of these have not – there still may not be enough to actually produce the type of effect that is being promised. For example, this proprietary blend is made up of a total of 992mg. Since studies showing that green tea extract successfully for weight loss used 500mg, and as it is fourth ingredient on the list, it is mathematically impossible for the manufacturers to have used enough of that ingredient to match the type of results that were experienced in the reputable research.
